Mohammad Waqas said...
- - - "First of all i want to tell you, please always refer the verse of Quran you are talking about with its context in which it was revealed on the Prophet Mohammad may PBUH, so that the reader will get a clear picture." - - -

If I read [and post] the exact verse of the Koran [in English] - what do I need you [or anyone else] for? Certainly the young who carry out the words of the Koran feel the same way?

Here are few examples [I'll give 7]:

In your Koran [the sole supreme authority of all of Islam]...

005.051 O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them for friendship is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

008.067 It is not fitting for a prophet that he should have prisoners of war [slay them first] until he hath thoroughly subdued the land. {Treason in all non-Muslim nations

009.029 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, {The Jews and Christians} Other non-Muslims are not 'so lucky'] until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

033.061 They shall have a curse on them: whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy. {Genocidal teaching - no matter how you look at it!

004.101 When ye travel - through the earth, there is no blame on you if ye shorten your prayers, for fear "'the unbelievers"' May attack you: For "'the Unbelievers"' are unto you open enemies.

002.216 Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing [war] which is good for you and that ye love a thing [peace] which is bad for you?

004.104 And slacken not in following up the enemy: If ye are suffering hardships, they are suffering similar hardships.

009.039 Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.

Give 7 New Testament Scriptures, Mohammad Waqassaid, that preach violence. You can't - there aren't any. None exist.

The New Testament also says...1Jo 2:27 But the anointing [The New Testament] which ye have received of Him abideth in you --- and ye need not that any man teach you !!!

I find the argument "You're taking the verses of the Koran out of context" null and void - when considering there is not enough 'scholars' of the Koran to go around for every home that receives a Koran - to 'soften the violence that it preaches'. There ARE those who WILL carry out the violence that it teaches.

I posted those verses of the Koran so that ALL can read them - and then they can decide for themselves - because they too - don't need anyone to teach them - not if they can read for themselves.

In no way does your Koran teach "Love thy neighbor as thyself" - even if he doesn't have the same God/god.

It teaches quite the opposite. And Peace for ALL - is what is at stake - especially for our children!

As we sit and debate - others in this world are plotting - to carry out the commands of your Koran:

004.094 O ye who believe! When ye go abroad in the cause of Allah, investigate carefully, and say not to any one who offers you a salutation: "Thou art none of a believer!" Therefore carefully investigate. {they are to keep their intentions hidden

005.033 THE PUNISHMENT of those who "'wage war"' against Allah and His Messenger is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet. - {meanwhile - It is the Muslims who are commanded to initiate the fight} 002.216 - 009.039

If you call that Peace Mohammad Waqas, - I say unto you - "NO THANK YOU!"
